The Cooper Fund of American Fox Terrier Rescue was established in August 2010 by Kathy McCabe, in loving memory of her very special wire fox terrier, Cooper, who came into her life as an abandoned dog and in the following 10 years brought her immeasurable joy and love.The purpose of The Cooper Fund is to provide much-needed emergency services (such as medical care, behavioral training and transportation) to dogs like Cooper homeless and abused fox terriers who desperately need help in finding forever homes.
“Cooper had a voracious appetite for life that was contagious. He never met a person, a dog, or a steak, for that matter (boy, did he love to eat), that he didn’t love. With Cooper’s good looks and sweet nature, it was no wonder that dozens and dozens of people asked me where I got him. Together we spread the message that even pure bred dogs end up in dire circumstances and can be found in shelters and rescues,” explains McCabe.
“Cooper and I volunteered in urban schools to teach kids about respecting animals. Together we fostered a smooth fox terrier through American Fox Terrier Rescue , an amazing girl named Fleck, who became a lifelong friend of Cooper’s. I’m convinced that Cooper’s mission on Earth was to spread love, that’s why the theme of The Cooper Fund is ‘spread the love.’ I hope you will join me in honoring Cooper and all the special animal souls we have loved by donating to help those fox terriers most in need . Even a small amount helps,” McCabe adds.
